Macron will arrive on a state visit to the US on December 1
French President Emmanuel Macron will arrive in Washington on December 1 on his first state visit to the United States since the beginning of the mandate of his American colleague Joe Biden, the Associated Press reported, quoted by BTA.
This will be the second state visit to the US for Macron, who was elected in May 2017 and re-elected to the presidency earlier this year. His first state visit to Washington took place under the administration of President Donald Trump.
The visit “will underscore the deep and enduring relationship with France, our oldest ally,” White House spokeswoman Karin-Jean-Pierre said in announcing the visit.
The invitation is also a sign that relations between Biden and Macron have improved again. Relations between them hit their lowest point last year after the US announced a deal to sell nuclear submarines to Australia. The US decision led to the cancellation of a deal between Paris and Canberra to sell French diesel submarines to Australia.
